Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Falling and rising again

If there be anywhere on earth [where] a lover of God is always kept safe from falling, I know nothing of it, for it was not shown me. Saint Julian of NorwichBut this was shown: that in falling and rising again we are always kept in the same precious love.

Between God and the soul there is no between.

He did not say, You will never have a rough passage, you will never be over-strained, you will never feel uncomfortable, but he did say You will never be overcome.
—Julian of Norwich (c. 1342-1416) in Revelations of Divine Love
